MIKE ‘ DIO, KISS ; VAN HALEN,  good time music show were re-memorable the power of Dio”s voice was captivating

KEITH Old Metallica, Buckethead, Gwar, Dethklok, all great guitarists with awesome stage shows.

 

 Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in playing music? Any pitfalls they should avoid?

SHON ‘ find a group of people who let you do what you want and can do. Be happy on stage and the crowd follows”

MIKE ‘ be open minded to others you never know what will come out of it

 

Do you have a greatest gig story you’d like to share?

MIKE the last show was great everyone was really into our music and our show for the first time we added all the elements together and had some acknowledgement that everything we’ve put out was worth it

 

On the same token as the above question. How about a “worse gig” ever story.

What do you think about the present music scene or lack of? Care to address that?
